Important Announcement about Toolkit Login:

An update to your Toolkit login process is in the works. This January your Book Fairs Toolkit login will merge with your existing Scholastic (global) login so that you will need to remember only one set of login credentials no matter where you go on the scholastic.com website. If you already have a Scholastic account anywhere on the Scholastic website (Storia, Scholastic Store, etc.), you'll be all set. If you don't, you'll be asked to register. The process only takes a few minutes. You can continue to use your email address as your user name, and we'll ask you to add a password.
